The gala is brought to life by dynamic dinner guests, including a Canadian writer at every table. Past guest authors include such luminaries as Margaret Atwood, Joseph Boyden, Miriam Toews, Emma Donoghue, Anne Michaels, Adrienne Clarkson, Noah Richler, Ann-Marie MacDonald, and Lawrence Hill. 

Chairs: Don Tapscott and Ana P. Lopes

Committee: Martha Durdin, Rudyard Griffiths, Sharon Haward-Laird, Peter Kahnert, Jennifer Lambert, Marla Lehberg, Mary Osborne, Neve Peric, and Patti Thorlakson.
